The Sixties Radical- Bold Faced Lies-Obama

Once again the evil Obama is going to make a speech about how he is going to create jobs and stimulate the economy. Enough of this bull crap already! Please give me a break. This speech will be more of the same bullshit. Obama will tell us how he will need more stimulus money to get the economy rolling.

This is a bold face lie.

Yes, the New York Times reported on Sunday that the real unemployment numbers are really at 16%.

Hells bells and odds bodkins give me a break will ya. Anyone with a half a brain knows the real unemployment numbers are anywhere between 16 and 20% not the 9.1% reported by the lying sacks of dung in the government and media.

Look folks this is all a set up so the evil one will panic us into thinking we need to spend more money that we don’t have to save our silly asses when in reality the reverse is true.

Obama lies.

The media lies.

The Democrat Socialist Party lies.

They all lie.

This plan is straight out of the Democrat Socialist Party and Communist Manifesto playbook.

The evil Obama is out of ideas.

The real truth is Obama wants to destroy this country.

I know this hard to wrap ones head around but all one has to do is look at the facts.

Government spending has hit an all time high of 14 trillion dollars since Obama took office.

 We have high gas prices and food prices. The housing markets is at an all time low. Banks are broke. The auto industry has been destroyed. Business is leaving this country left and right. Private sector jobs have all but collapsed while government jobs have all increased.

Obama blames all of this on the Tea Party-Translation you and me.

The evil one is taking care of his cronies.

This is called crony capitalism.

Small Business owners have a bull’s eye on their backs.

Anyone who makes more than 250 grand will be taxed to death. In reality we will all foot the bill.

The Democrat Socialist Party is hell bend on taxing every one into the next life.

This is all about power and controlling our lives.

Please read an ECON 101 book.

All government can do is redistribute wealth not create it.

This is exactly what is happening now in this country.

This is based on the Marxist model that government is center of the universe.

That strong central government is a must for a society to work when in reality individual freedom, private property rights and a small-centralized government works best.

This is what our country was founded upon.

It is called free enterprise.

This argument has been going on since the beginning of time.

Here are a few words from our founding fathers and framers of the Constitution:

Liberty is a word which, according as it is used, comprehends the most good and the most evil of any in the world. Justly understood it is sacred next to those which we appropriate in divine adoration; but in the mouths of some it means anything, which enervate a necessary government; excite a jealousy of the rulers who are our own choice, and keep society in confusion for want of a power sufficiently concentered to promote good.

Oliver Ellsworth, The Landholder, No. III, November 19, 1787

Laws that forbid the carrying of arms… disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes… Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.

Cesare Beccaria, On Crimes and Punishment, quoted by Thomas Jefferson in Commonplace Book, 1774-1776

No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.

Samuel Adams, letter to James Warren, November 4, 1775

Nothing is more certain than that a general profligacy and corruption of manners make a people ripe for destruction. A good form of government may hold the rotten materials together for some time, but beyond a certain pitch, even the best constitution will be ineffectual, and slavery must ensue.

John Witherspoon, The Dominion of Providence Over the Passions of Men, 1776

On the other hand, the duty imposed upon him to take care, that the laws be faithfully executed, follows out the strong injunctions of his oath of office, that he will “preserve, protect, and defend the constitution.” The great object of the executive department is to accomplish this purpose; and without it, be the form of government whatever it may, it will be utterly worthless for offence, or defence; for the redress of grievances, or the protection of rights; for the happiness, or good order, or safety of the people.

Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833

Here is one of my hero’s Doctor Walter. E. Williams.

Economics 101
by Walter E. Williams

Economic ignorance allows us to fall easy prey to political charlatans and demagogues, so how about a little Economics 101.

How many times have we heard “free tuition”, “free healthcare”, and free you-name-it? If a particular good or service is truly free, we can have as much of it that we want without the sacrifice of other goods or services. Take a “free” library; is it really free? The answer is no. Had the library not been built, that $50 million could have purchased something else. That something else sacrificed is the cost of the library. While users of the library might pay a zero price, zero price and free are not one and the same. So when politicians talk about providing something free, ask them to identify the beneficent Santa Claus or Tooth Fairy.

It’s popular to condemn greed but it’s greed that gets wonderful things done. When I say greed, I don’t mean stealing, fraud, misrepresentation, and other forms of dishonesty. I mean people trying to get as much as they can for themselves. We don’t give second thought to the many wonderful things that others do for us. Detroit assembly line workers get up at the crack of dawn to produce the car that you enjoy. Farm workers toil in the blazing sun gathering grapes for our wine. Snowplow drivers brave blizzards just so we can have access to our roads. Do you think these people make these personal sacrifice because they care about us? My bet is that they don’t give a hoot. Instead, they along with their bosses do these wonderful things for us because they want more for themselves.

People in the education and political establishments pretend they’re not motivated by such “callous” motives as greed and profits. These people “care” about us but which areas of our lives do we derive the greatest pleasures and have the fewest complaints, and which areas do we have the greatest headaches and complaints? We tend to have a high satisfaction level with goods and services like computers, cell phones, movies, clothing and supermarkets. These are areas were the motivation is greed and profits. Our greatest dissatisfaction are in areas of caring and no profit motive such as public education, postal services, and politics. Give me greed and profits and you can keep the caring.

How about the idea that if it saves just one life it’s worth it? That’s some of the stated justification for government mandates for child-proof medicine bottles, gun locks, bike helmets and all sorts of warning labels. No doubt there’s a benefit to these government mandates but if we only look at benefits we’ll do darn near anything because there’s always a benefit to any action. For example, why not have a congressionally mandated five mph highway speed limit? According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, there were 43,220 highway fatalities in 2003 with an estimated cost of $230 billion. A five mph speed limit would have spared our nation of this loss of life and billions of dollars.

You say, “Williams, that’s preposterous!” You’re right. Most people would agree that a five mph speed limit is stupid, impractical and insane. That’s one way of putting it but what they really mean is: the benefit of saving 43,200 highway deaths and the $230 billion, that would result from mandating a five mph speed limit, isn’t worth all the inconvenience, delays and misery.

Admittedly, the five mph speed limit is an extreme example, a reductio ad absurdum. Nonetheless, it illustrates the principle that our actions shouldn’t be guided by benefits only; we should also ask about costs. Again when politicians come to us pretending they’re Santa Clauses or Tooth Fairies delivering benefits only, we should ask what’s the cost and who’s going to pay and why.
